With the start of the second semester on March 1, our request for donors to renew their Thesis Support Grants met with generous responses, including from US-based members and alumni! The P10,000 grant is very meaningful to our less-resourced Seniors to carry out their final capstone projects. The lockdown limitations will make field surveys and laboratory experiments not doable. Thus, Seniors will have to do heavy computational modelling and simulations which require additional memory devices and connectivity charges.
